designed to protect from electric shock. Despite the GFCI
protection, make sure that no water runs into the drill. Keep the
Swissfloat dry after use.
The cordless motor

drill with variable speed. Two batteries and a
60min-charger are included. A fast 15min-charger is available as
well as a 12V vehicle
ensure easy charging of the batteries in the field.
The cordless motor is recommended for users in rural areas with
limited electrical power availability, or simply to avoid the use of
annoying extension cords. Disadvantages of cordless motors include
their higher weight and their battery's need for charging. Also they
are more expensive and the batteries and have a limited life span,
especially with the use of the fast 15min-charger. The variable
speed trigger can only be locked with an improvised device such as a
rubber band. The cordless motor has three gears to enable slower
grinding speed and maximum speed is slightly slower than the corded
motor (2000 rpm for the 18V and 1800 rpm for the 12V motor). You can
expect to float around 3-6 horses with the 12V model and around 6-9
horses with the 18V model with one battery charger.
For international customers with other
We offer the Swissfloat with a 220V corded motor and the cordless
motors with a
220V charger. Unfortunately we are not able to customize the
electric cords with the plugs for individual countries
and we are not offering GFCIs for 220V countries. Please consult a
local electrician to customize the cord of your motor or battery
charger for your needs. We strongly recommend using a GFCI for the
corded model. Please
